Step 1. Before you begin the assembly, read and follow all operating and safety instructions included with the pump.
Step 2. Use a shovel to dig
a hole in the ground, 16" in diameter and 12" deep, for the fountain reservoir. Place the reservoir in the hole, making sure the top of the reservoir is level with or just above the
surface of the ground. Do not allow soil to spill into the reservoir; it could later clog the pump.
Step 3. Connect one end of the 2' hose to the nipple on the pump. Place the pump upright in the bottom of the reservoir.
Step 4. Fill the reservoir with fresh clean water. Reminder: the pump must be completely submerged in water before you plug it in.
After you've filled the reservoir with water, plug in the pump and use the dial on the end of the pump to adjust the velocity of the fountain spray.
Step 5. Turn off the pump. Guide the free end of the hose up through the hole in the fountain tray. Place the tray on top of the reservoir. Fill the fountain tray with clean
pebbles or stone (see the illustration at right).
Step 6. Cut the hose to be level with the surface of the stones. Or, if you are using a decorative fountain top, cut the hose to the appropriate height.
Step 7. The fountain tray comes with three convenient planting channels. Please
plant only in these channels to keep the water and pump free
